PRR 4222, EP-20, 1962         
Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide by an unidentified photographer that was taken at the horse racing track in Bowie, Maryland, during August of 1962. Shown here (L to R) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #4222 and another E-7 whose number is not recorded. Both are EP-20's built by GM-EMD and rated at 2,000 horsepower each. #4222 was built as number "5862" in February of 1948, renumbered "4222" in preparation for the PRR-NYC merger, and retired in September of 1967 after just 19 years of revenue service. In this context, this A-A set of locomotives is poised to make the return run to Washington Union Station with their seven-car racetrack special. ("Tchowee"; #6 of 29)
